With last month’s draft in the rear view mirror, mock fantasy drafts have begun to surface, marking the unofficial start to the new fantasy football season. There is a sense, however, that times are changing as fantasy football continues to evolve to counter different schematic trends sweeping the league.

Michael Fabiano, Fantasy Editor for NFL Network and NFL.com, calls in to the show to discuss the possible fantasy implications of the Peyton Manning situation and other league topics that could affect your fantasy football team this fall. Make sure to listen for Fabiano’s comments on Reggie Bush and where he expects him to be drafted in 2012 drafts.
Check out the best clips from this past week on the Finsiders. This week’s clips include: Sam Madison giving away his fantasy football sleeper (or so he thinks), Cam Wake talking about his physique, Kevin Burnett giving some words of wisdom about the proper mentality a team should enter a season with, and Kim Bokamper and Jeff Darlington have a deep discussion about mustaches.
With many fantasy drafts happening this week and early next week, it’s time to begin our 2011 fantasy football coverage! We’ll start with the quarterback position and why not? It’s a position that in most scoring formats earns more points than any other spot.
Michael Fabiano is the master of all-things fantasy football and the fantasy football editor for both NFL.com and the NFL Network. We called him up last night so as to get an idea of how the rookie class of 2011 projects fantasy-wise, particularly some of the guys drafted by the Dolphins.
